St Pauls Carnival returns in 2018 – Where all 20 sound systems and stages will be

Image

St Pauls Carnival returns in 2018 for its 50th anniversary since the first carnival in 1968. This iconic Bristol event represents the best of Afro-Caribbean culture, as well as the diversity, creativity and vibrancy of its home city, Bristol.

At the heart of carnival is our masquerade procession with highly ornate and colourful costumes and floats from local schools and cultural associations, a stage for professional performers, sound systems in neighbouring streets and a range of stalls selling food from a wide range of cultures.

DO REMEMBER SATURDAY 7TH JULY 2018
ST PAULS CARNIVAL BRISTOL
NEGUS MELODY SOUND
WINKWORTH PLACE BS2 8XT

St Pauls Carnival makes its triumphant return, excitement is reaching fever pitch.

One of the key factors of Saturday’s huge 50th anniversary celebration will be the musical offering, with sound systems and stages playing a major and very loud part in it.

The event itself will run from noon to 10pm, with the procession starting on Wilson Street and finishing at St Paul’s Sports Centre.

In total there will be a whopping 20 different sound systems and stages for people to enjoy on July 7, with each one showcasing a different sound, as well as a few areas designed for children and families.
There will be 10 PA systems and speaker stacks in people’s gardens and on various streets, along with seven stages in parks and open spaces
While carnival has historically featured predominantly Jamaican sounds with a hefty offering of dub and reggae, this year the committee has decided to diversify and add other genres into the mix, which means people can expect to hear a huge array of different sounds including Soca, Salsa, Dancehall and drum & bass, too.

Notes for Notes Appeal

Notes for Notes appeal aims to raise £20,000 towards a £500,000 Conservation Project to repair the much-loved Trinity Centre

For every every £5 raised for the Notes for Notes appeal, Trinity will exchange one musical note.

Once we reach our target we will launch ‘the Trinity Anthem’ – a unique piece of music, created by Adrian Utley & John Parish, to celebrate the diverse musical heritage of the centre and city of Bristol.

Each year The Trinity Centre is used by over 60,000 people, providing over 3000 hours of free and subsidised space for community activities.

We hope that people who hold Trinity close to their hearts will support the Conservation Project and help us raise vital funds to help secure the centre’s future.

Groundswell Rising Film Screening

Come and see this moving film on fracking and meet the executive producer..
Mark Lichty from Pennsylvania in the USA will be in Bristol for a screening of Groundswell Rising, a documentary about fracking in America and the social movement which has emerged from affected communities. It is informative, daunting, inspiring and hopeful all at once. Mark is the film’s executive producer and will be in England on a nine day tour.

Mark has long been involved in issues of social justice and change through organizations such as Common Cause, Project for Nuclear Awareness and others. He is an attorney and a former CEO of Bustin Industrial Products. He used to believe gas was a solution to future energy needs and spent tens of thousands of dollars converting his plant to gas, and had no issues with fracking at that time. When he subsequently became involved with the research for the Groundswell Rising film, he changed his position completely. He now believes fracking is the major issue of our times and, due to the health and environmental consequences, is a moral issue as well.

This is a great opportunity to come and find out more about fracking and hear first hand from someone who has lived side by side with the industry and has documented people taking charge of defending their communities against its inherent dangers. There will also be a chance to find out about the situation in the UK as fracking licences have been issued in many areas including in North Somerset, quite close to Bristol.

01/11/2016  Starts – 19:00 to 21:30 TICKET PRICE – Free, donations welcome
